For Spring, the couture catwalk shows embraced upon Paris where some of the most spectacular pieces were showcased.
Carefully selected hairstyles must accompany the couture craftsmanship well so we have rounded up some of our favourite
looks from the shows. Despite the extravagant nature of the clothing, the majority of hairstyles are achievable from home so
why not try some high fashion looks yourself?
The muse for the backstage Christian Dior hair looks came from hairstylist Guido Palau and Simons, who together created
a unique ponytail style for the couture show. Ornate rings were crafted in diverse colours and looped into the sectioned hair,
connecting it with a ponytail of hair extensions. Each set of extensions was carefully selected to match the models exact hair

Laid back tousled locks made their mark on the runway at the Versace couture show with each model sporting their natural

The hair look at Elie Saab emulated the striking runway pieces combining both a decorative and elegant feel. Curated by
Orlando Pita, hair was styled in a side part and moulded into luscious waves but not as rigid as this decadent style can

Both Karl Lagerfeld and hairstyling genius Sam McKnight conducted Chanel’s flower party for the couture catwalk, with
models embracing the great outdoors this season. A single loose plait was created to imitate a simple, windswept style
